Abstract

A highly porous porphyrin-based organic polymer, PCPF-1, was constructed via homo-coupling reaction of the custom-designed porphyrin ligand, 5,10,15,20-tetrakis(4-bromophenyl)porphyrin. PCPF-1 possesses a large BET surface area of over 1300 m2 g−1 (Langmuir surface area of over 2400 m2 g−1) and exhibits strong hydrophobicity with a water contact angle of 135°, and these features afford it the highest adsorptive capacities for saturated hydrocarbons and gasoline among sorbent materials reported thus far, as well as render it the capability to remove oil from water.
